Intermec, Enable Mobile Parking System at Coliseum

— October 06, 2011 recently announced the successful deployment of its mobile event parking system at the Oakland Raiders home opener game against the New York Jets on September 25, 2011. The company’s system runs on Intermec CN50 rugged mobile computers and Intermec PB21 mobile printers.
At the game, 30 of the handhelds and printers were used by Propark America’s Coliseum parking team to process cash and credit card parking transactions while tracking vehicle ingress over a cellular network.
The system uses cloud computing technology to provide revenue control and global reporting for flat-rate parking operations. The company’s architecture allowed Propark to use several devices that were previously implemented at other Propark locations, enabling Propark to increase their coverage at Coliseum without paying for additional hardware, infrastructure or licensing fees.
“We are excited to work with and Propark to offer more options to guests attending our events,” said Oracle Arena and Coliseum interim general manager Ron Little. “Now, when you arrive at an Oracle Arena or Coliseum event, you can pay your parking fee with Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover. This allows for a quicker transaction at the gate, alleviating some of the traffic congestion that naturally happens as guests wait to pay for parking.”
